Innes Cameron made an instant impact for Ayr United after he scored within 60 seconds of coming on against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The striker ,who is on loan from Ayrshire rivals Kilmarnock, only signed for the Honest Men on Friday and he wasted no time in showing his talent as he found the back of the net with his first touch just before the hour mark after coming off the bench.

Fellow new signing Cammy Smith also impressed with his great run leading to the goal.

Both Cameron and Smith are on loan at Somerset Park until the end of January.

It looked as if their partnership would be enough to see Ayr travel back with all three points but Inverness equalised late on with Nikolay Todorov rescuing a point for the home side with four minutes to play.

However, in stoppage time Smith came close to scoring with a free-kick on the edge of the box but it was met by Caley goalkeeper Mark Ridgers.

The result means the Honest Men sit fourth in the Scottish Championship and remain unbeaten in the league this season.

Speaking after the game Ayr manager Mark Kerr was left frustrated not to maintain his side’s 100 per cent start to the league.

He said: “It’s a hard one to take being so close to a victory in Inverness to then concede late on as defensively we looked comfortable.

“I thought we were on the front foot for most of the game and the goal we gave away was so avoidable.

“We gave the ball away and never recovered.

“Innes Cameron came on and made an impact.

“He was brilliant and peeled away and that’s the natural movement he has and he stuck it away perfectly.

“Cammy Smith also did amazing to set up the goal and it would have been brilliant to get a last-minute winner.

“There are positives but we would have been delighted to start with six points from six.”

Next up for Kerr’s side is another away trip on Saturday this time to Greenock Morton.
